An introduction to business creation

The aim of this course is to introduce you to basic business terminology and methods. Four sessions will take you through important steps of the business creation process. You will be asked to apply the methods to your own project, and the content in one session will hence build on the experience from the previous one. On completion of the course, you will be better prepared to develop your business idea and able to continue the process, building on the new knowledge, in coaching sessions with e.g. KI Innovations AB.
